Biography   Jan Matulka


Born in Prague, Czechoslovakia, Jan Matulka became a leading modernist working with Stuart Davis to find a new type of Cubism based on distortion of forms.  The totality of his work ranged from traditional to abstract, reflecting the changes in the art world of 20th century America.
